I-440 east closed this weekend for road construction
NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) -
I-440 eastbound between I-24 and I-65 will be closed again this weekend for concrete repairs.
The interstate will be closed Friday beginning at 8 p.m. and will reopen by 5 a.m. on Monday. This is the fifth of 10 scheduled weekend closings.
The repairs are part of a $9.7-million project to widen this stretch of I-440 eastbound. A total of 10 weekend closures will allow the concrete work to be completed on an accelerated schedule. Otherwise, repairs would require lane closures over a period of several months. During the weekend closures, crews will jackhammer and remove large sections of deteriorating concrete as much as a foot deep. Once the new concrete is poured, it will have to harden for several hours. The travel lanes will then be re-striped before reopening to traffic.
The next five interstate closures are tentatively planned for the following weekends:
All work is weather-dependent and may be rescheduled in the event of rain or severe weather.
